SHIP FROM CHINA - The Emma Maersk

What a ship....no wonder 'Made in China' is displacing North American goods big time with this floating continent transporting goods across the Pacific in 4 days no less!!!?

This is how Wal-Mart gets all its stuff from China ! . Get a load of this ship!
15,000 containers and a 207' beam! And look at the crew-size: 13 people for a ship longer than a US aircraft carrier which has a crew of 5,000 men and officers.


Think it's big enough? Note that its 207' beam means it cannot fit through the Panama or Suez Canals . It is strictly transpacific. Check out the cruise speed: 31 knots means th e goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a China-to-California run. So this behemoth is hugel y competitive when carrying perishable goods.

This ship was built in five sections. The sections floated together and then welded. The command bridge is higher than a 10-story building and has 11 cargo crane rigs that can operate simultaneously.

Additional info:

Country of origin - Denmark

Length - 1,302 ft

Width - 207 ft

Net cargo - 123,200 tons

Engine - 14 in-line cylinders diesel engine (110,000 BHP)

Cruise Speed - 31 knots

Cargo capacity - 15,000

Crew - 13 people

First Trip - Sept. 08, 2006

Construction cost - US $145,000,000+

Silicone painting app lied to the ship bottom reduces water resistance and saves 317,000 gallons of diesel per year

Editorial Comment! A recent documentary in late March on the History Channel, noted that most all of these containers are shipped back to China EMPTY - yep you heard it right. We send nothing back on most of these ships. What does that tell you about the current financial state of this country?

Has anyone heard about the boycott from many journalists to stop buying China products?? If that 50 cents saving is keeping you afloat, you didn't need to be shopping anyway.

But if millions think 'buy American' every day, it effects our industries, manufacturing companies, etc. and helps save American jobs.

Check every product before you buy--if my lazy husband can conform and change his shopping habits, many others can!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you read labels, you will have noticed that many stores and catalogs sell mostly imported goods.

Michelle, Sandra and JJ...

Any ideas, perhaps theoretical at this point, on how to increase American manufacturing to something like our former status?
Cut Corporate taxes, so businesses will stay here.
Walmart is like cigarettes, hard to kick the habit, especially when your choices are limited.
There are two other grocerie stores in the area, but I'm not working, and can't afford to pay more, so .... sometimes I do go to Wally-World. I know it's bad, but they have us over a barrel.
That's good. Anything else? Something radically new. Think in terms of WalMart.
I was thinking along lines of competing with WalMart. I go there too. But how would you take WalMart off the shelf across the country?
I don't think we can. We can, however, pressure Walmart to buy American made!
WalMart has its points of weakness and those who should be able to exploit them. I won't mention the mechanism of what I'm thinking of, but since you've touched on part... an important part... how would you get WalMart to sell more 'American'? You may tire of my simple questions that require thought. If you do, just ump ship. (No pun intended about the Emma Maersk.)
'jump ship', that is.
Maybe we could start a group to bombard them with emails. This has worked for some things.
Here is a link, I will send them a note. Anybody else?

http://walmartstores.com/contactus/feedback.aspx


This is what I wrote:
In our current state of the economy in the US, I would like to ask that all Walmarts in the US please try to buy American made goods. Your corporation has the size and power to help this country. I also think this would help your business in the US if it is made known that you support this country. Many others agree.
